Intergovernmental Agreement on Nationally Consistent Worker Screening

On 29 May 2020, the Prime Minister announced that the Council of Australian Government (COAG) will cease and a new National Federation Reform Council (NFRC) will be formed, with National Cabinet at the centre of the NFRC.

More information is available on the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet website.

This Intergovernmental Agreement sets out the national policy for National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) worker screening. It requires people who provide NDIS supports and services through a registered NDIS provider to undergo a worker screening check. The Agreement will commence from 1 July 2018 in New South Wales, Queensland and Tasmania, and will be operational in other jurisdictions as each State and Territory signs on.
